    Dislocated my knee cap - AGAIN. Was doing my warmup and got to 2 plates single leg quad extension, and it just popped on me. I hadn't had anything go wrong with my knee in over a year, was seeing great progress now this. I ended up getting so mad that it happened, I still went back and did some bottom start good mornings as a ME movement. Got up to 225 for a couple brief sets and realized I was being fucking stupid and went home. I can barely walk today :hs:

    Good news is that the gimp has already gotten me one cutie freshmans number :naughty:

    aren't leg extensions supposed to be terrible for your knees?

    Yes, leg extensions are terrible for your knees. I haven't done them in years!!

    What would you recommend for someone with bad knees? I'm not giving up working out, and I'm not giving up PL.

    Box squats!!! Sit way back with a wide stance and don't let your knees come over your feet. I quit doing hacks, leg press, extensions and went to box squats only. My knees stopped hurting and my legs still grew!!

    Box squats are my best friend. I just got into the habit of doing a true warmup which is why I was doing the extensions. Wasn't even going heavy on them!

    I'm gonna rehab this shit, and come back strong as an ox!

    Did that hurt your quad development?

    Quad extensions can't be all bad for your knees, PT's use them to rehab some knee injuries.

    Okay, but physical therapists know a lot more about this than most of us do.

    My old PT had me doing one legged leg presses, with very light band tension. His rehab program was a joke.

    I know!! I thought about lifting weights but I'm scared I'll get too big!! Plus, all of those big guys have small dick's!! Also if you get too big you can't be fast anymore and have no flexibility!!

    I've got a Chia Chest!! I guess having a hairy chest is not the "in" thing now. I'm old and married and I carry a fanny pack!! I'm definately not hip or in or whatever you call it nowdays. My wife likes the hair so it's all good. I shaved it for years when I was bodybuilding, got really sick of that!!!
